    June 6, 2019 - Aging nicely though still on the young side. Notes unchanged from 2017.

    November 3, 2018 - Raspberry, strawberry, dried herbs, minerality, spice, white pepper, potpourri. Medium body & acidity. Medium-long finish. Ready now, but no rush. Went well with pork tenderloin & squash.

    December 8, 2017 - Very interesting and approachable wine. Some sweet herbs and bright fruit in the nose. Body is medium; silky mouthfeel with nice tannins. Very lingering finish. Have driven through the Yorkville Highlands on 128 for many years but this is worth a stop.
